second place in a time trial.

 

In a H5 category time hearing on Friday, a athletes tackled dual laps
on a quick 8.3-kilometre circuit. Zanardi set a second fastest time

send on Sunday, that saw a autocratic win by a Italian national
group with Zanardi, Paolo Cecchetto (IT) and Francesca Porcellato (IT).

 

“To do a resume of my weekend: it has been excellent. Because, quite
frankly, infrequently it is good to be reminded that we are not racing
alone. Ostende was important, as it was a usually event we would
have to accommodate my approach opponents before we conduct to Rio de Janeiro. And
Jetze Plat showed that he is apropos strong,” pronounced Zanardi. “He
finished a time hearing 13 seconds quicker than me. we afterwards won the
highway race, since we was smarter than him. It was a crazy foe with an
extraordinary and really prolonged scurry towards a finish. we crossed a line
with a speed of 61.7 km/h, and that shows how heated this scurry was.
On one side, Jetze’s form is something that is concerning me because
he is 25 and we am scarcely 50, and from here to Sep it will
positively be easier for him to urge even some-more than it is for me.
But on a other side, we have to contend that finishing second in a time
hearing was substantially even sweeter than to win again. It is really
sparkling to have such a clever competition like him, who is a good guy
and a tip athlete. we am really encouraged to do all to uncover adult in
Rio good prepared.”

 

Zanardi will now use a subsequent days to redeem and afterwards restart his
complete training programme subsequent week.
